Concept of Film Sound Restoration by Adapting to Contemporary Cinema Theatre

Document Thumbnail

This paper presents an individual approach to restoration of Polish film sound based on the author’s own works. It answers the following question: under what conditions, and by the use of which techniques, may the restoration of archive film sound provide the viewer with a cleaner reproduction of the original sound while maintaining the standard expected by a modern cinema-going audience. At its basic level, the sound restoration routine comprises the following: transfer from the magnetic tape, syncing, cleaning of low/high frequency noises, repair of material impairments and reprinting effect, and mastering for broadcasting, cinema, DVD/Blu-ray, and internet formats. The reconstruction discussed modifies the sound quality and sometimes the contents. However, it can be performed only under certain legal restrictions.
